A beautiful trek of extreme contrast, you cross under ten of the twelve highest peaks in the Alps, encountering towering snow-capped mountains and soaring glaciers, as well as descending into green, flower-filled meadows by beautiful and remote Alpine villages.
Living in mountain huts (open from mid June to mid September) or braving it in a tent, this is an ultimate adventure for any ski fanatic – allowing you to embrace and understand the majestic Alps in a whole new way.
Ending in the picturesque Swiss village of Zermatt, the hike takes you to one of the most beautiful places in all the Alps.
Nestled below the famous east face of the majestic Matterhorn - sometimes referred to as the ‘mountain of mountains’ for its striking beauty and symmetry - Zermatt is the perfect Alpine retreat for some rest and relaxation after your Haute Route adventure.
Devoid of cars, Zermatt is always filled with pure, clean air, while also being home to world-famous skiing, boasting 360km of pistes and ski lift heights of up to 3,883km.
Our favourite place to stay in Zermatt is always Cervo Mountain Boutique Resort. Overlooking the Matterhorn and the town of Zermatt itself, Cervo hosts two of the most sought-after restaurants in the area and is the beating heart of Zermatt’s fun foodie scene.
A fabulous base after a fabulous alpine adventure; what’s Zermatt-er with you? Get booking! (Sorry.)
